Cardiff vs Liverpool (By: Luke)
Cardiff surprised last weekend and managed to get a three-pointer on the road to Brighton with a 2:0 result. A goal in each halftime was enough, against hosts who had more of the ball possession but failed to be any concrete with it. The side is now a couple of points below safely placed Southampton and remains under pressure.
Liverpool was convincing at home against Chelsea in a 2:0 win. They continued the title race being a point behind the Citizen, while the side easily dispatched Porto 1:4 in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. No wonder, since the quality difference exists and it was easy for the Reds to play after two goals advantage from the first leg.
Cardiff will miss very important defenders Bamba (28/4), Paterson (27/4) and midfielder Arter (25/0) most likely. The Reds have defender Lovren (11/1) and offensive Lallana (13/0) doubtful.
Cardiff got their points last weekend, but the pressure remains high on them. Even a point here can't be described as a fully positive outcome.
Liverpool is still in a title race and having that in mind, they aren't set to rotate the squad here. The Reds have every reason to exploit the situation in an easy way.
